In the spirit of Friendsgiving, two renowned Brown-Forman brands have announced a joint donation of $50,000 to No Kid Hungry.
They hope to inspire others to support the campaign this holiday season.
Yesterday’s donation of $50,000 represents about a half-million meals provided to children facing food insecurity—just one dollar can provide a total of ten meals.
Share Our Strength, a nonprofit dedicated to combating hunger and advocating for those in need, launched No Kid Hungry in 2010. Since then, food-insecure children have been provided free breakfasts, lunches and after-school meals.
The campaign created and launched the Free Meals Finder shortly after Covid-19 took hold in the United States. In addition, No Kid Hungry has given schools—a crucial meal resource—and communities throughout the nation $34.5 million in emergency relief funds.
No Kid Hungry also supports nutrition-focused food programs that help families shop for and prepare healthy meals.
Millions of people struggle with food insecurity and poverty every day. The Covid pandemic has exacerbated these problems, thrusting even more Americans into desperate situations.
If you can afford to do so, please consider donating to No Kid Hungry this holiday season. Click here for their donation page. You can also text “FRIENDS” to 68405. Spread the word and help fight food insecurity today!
I’ve been studying and writing about the hospitality industry since 2006. Like so many people, I started my journey in this business by working as a host, server and bartender. I was introduced to nightlife in Chicago, learning the ins and outs of nightclubs and after-hours hot spots.
After moving to Las Vegas nearly 20 years ago, I both co-owned a valet company and helped promote the club it serviced. That led to me taking on the role of editor for a Las Vegas hospitality industry publication.
A few short years later, I continued along my journey of hospitality industry reporting. I went from contributing to a major industry outlet to taking on the role of editor and content curator.
